    2 million iPads in less than 60 days!  Maybe 3 million this quarter isn’t too far off….


    CUPERTINO, Calif., May 31./ Apple? today announced that iPad? sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3. Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past weekend. iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

    “Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

    iPad allows users to connect with their apps, content and the Internet in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch? user interface. iPad is 0.5 inches thin and weighs just 1.5 pounds?thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook?and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life.

    Developers have created over 5,000 exciting new apps for iPad that take advantage of its Multi-Touch user interface, large screen and high-quality graphics. iPad will run almost all of the more than 200,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone? or iPod touch?.

    Hm…gap up on Tuesday?  Just maybe!

    I don’t think Apple would have sold 2 million iPads just in a weekend.  (Maybe the next iPhone can take care of that one.)

    Apple has done this launch just about perfectly.  It launched in disciplined phases to give itself more time for the product ramp-up, from the 2-stage launch in the US to the multi-stage launch internationally (with Wi-Fi + 3G availability worldwide). 

    In a sense, Apple cost itself some short-term revenues, but as we all know, this is one seriously shrewd, long-view company we’re talking about.  Not to say this was the only “right way” to launch iPad, but their approach makes so much sense.  Launch the two iPad skews at separate times in the US to assess domestic demand and also adjust supplies (since the US data provides a little perspective on which model may be more popular) for the international launch.  Launch iPad in steps worldwide to minimize product constraint, ensure higher quality of launch, and to keep the consumer’s interest.  Each expansion phase brings another contributing wave of sales. 

    Genius at work, and AAPL should be rewarded with a nice boost tomorrow.

    The Euro fell which means the US equity markets will get pushed down. Worse, traders are looking at our $72T of extended debt on $2.5T of annual revenue and we don’t like that we’re a 17% participant in the IMF yet behind the euro banks in order of repayment. Effectively, we’re bailing out the Euro’s failing socialism and we down’t like it because we’re heading toward a sovereign default in 10-15 years like the sub-prime default. The spending model is unsustainable.

    At the same time, every money manager just got their monthly bankroll and everybody can, if they wish, buy the dips in the value stocks.

    I think we’re going up this week, starting tomorrow:  iPad #s.  WWDC. Revisions to Q3 EPS projections.  New iPhone.  Apple TV rumor buzz.

    This is an exciting/gut-wrenching time for AAPL investors, especially for anyone with shorter time horizons.  Can AAPL, assuming continued bad news, market downturn, what have you, rise above the fray on the strength of its fundamentals, products and business strategy?  It’s as close to certain as it gets that AAPL will continue to be on a growth tear for the next three quarters.

    Anything can happen of course, but I’m in the “AAPL goes up” group for now.

    This week should be really interesting and I agree with Mav et al about aapl up this week. But this morning (from London) Europe down, China down and Apple in Frankfurt down a little. Have some spare cash to put to work today in Apple and will do so before US mkt close. Tonight SJ will be on All things Digital with Kara Swisher and should be a help. But this is the tightest the spring has been wound and Apple stock seems ready to explode to the upside as soon as the quants, hedgies, dark pools have their fill. it seems imminent
    EDIT:  One more thing. A China newspaper quotes China Unicom as saying that sales of the iPhone DOUBLED in May. this is from Bloomberg

    Nice catch.  This isn’t just a “VeriPhone” thing and Q2 should’ve put that issue to rest.  I think Apple should add a second carrier in the US soon, I don’t much care which one, but so many in the media (in the States, anyway) seem to miss iPhone’s worldwide reach.  Just as long as the iPhone meaningfully improves on the 3GS, all 80+ countries including the US will cause a massive tidal wave of sales.  Apple has only one or two phones, but it has endless points of distribution.  I wonder if the current batch of Droids are selling in nearly as many countries.

    Eric, you just don’t “get it” do you?

    This the the PLAN of the Globalists, CREATE CHAOS, then use what they create, to scare people enough to give up their freedoms, ask for “protection” and of course, the “solution” is less freedom, more taxes, and a further step towards their NWO and placing a certain prophetic character on a governing throne in a certain Mid East city. This is DELIBERATE, planned, and orchestrated.

    Shorting BP continues to work as the rest of the world learns that it is bigger than expected, it’ll take longer than expected and everybody involved will be hated.

    BP has a LEGAL OBLIGATION of $75,000,000 MAX for cleanup. They may have stated that they will pay all, but when push comes to shove, a year after the event is over, their lawyers {multinational teams of course…}  will assert that LEGAL LIMIT and refuse to pay more, and they WILL BE within their legal rights to do so.

    The NWO folks { and BP is ground zero in all of their meetings } don’t CARE if you hate them, they EXPECT YOU WILL, and they have planned accordingly to deal with that….

    Riot police wearing state of the art, NWO protection gear, so you can hate them as much as you wish, but you WILL BE compliant eventually, or imprisoned or dead…..

    Ok, that was fun Tan.

    Can we get back to the APPLE intraday relevant threads?

    Your NWO may eventually come, but not today or this week.

    So let’s please keep the posts on point.

    I for one am eagerly awaiting WWDC next week so this week is critical IMHO.

    Tan, You’ve got it wrong. Those guys in black are Apple iPad developers on their way to WWDC.

    Given the strength and WWDC rumors, safe to say we get to 272.45+ by WWDC (June 7) or sooner !!!

    At which point there will be no one left who lost money buying AAPL shares and holding them!  And what, maybe a week or two’s worth of them that got back to even and out thanks very much.  Which leads us to mid-July.  Consarned it, I know I had something on my calendar for that time period, but danged if I can remember.  Was it NWO?  Nah.
